Media Advisory - Queen's University Psychology Clinic hosts sleep camp

Tuesday, June 12, 2018

KINGSTON – Queen’s University Psychology Clinic is hosting a Sleep Camp for Teachers, a unique five-week sleep program designed for teachers. Many school teachers have trouble sleeping but are unable to come in for help during the school year, hence the idea of a summer sleep camp.

What

The sleep camp will help teachers learn effective strategies to reverse insomnia, including scheduling your sleep in a specific way and how to calm a racing mind.

Who

The program is run by psychologist and Queen’s University professor Judith Davidson. Dr. Davidson supervises doctoral students in clinical psychology at the Queen’s Psychology Clinic. She is the author of Sink into Sleep, a book that focuses on effective treatments for insomnia. The sleep program uses cognitive behavioural therapy as the first-line treatment for chronic insomnia.

Where

The Sleep Therapy Service at the Queen’s Psychology Clinic (184 Barrie Street) is open year-round for adults with sleep problems, and offers both group and individual treatment for insomnia. The clinic is staffed by Queen’s graduate students in clinical psychology.

When

Dr. Davidson is available for media interviews this week. The Sleep Camp starts in July.
